SAMEE workshop with the SEND advisor community!

Sam, Wayne and Sianell had great day networking with the SEND Adviser community in Dorset this week. A huge thank you to Dorset Careers Hub for organising. Talking about SAMEE charity Steps into Self-Employment was amazing and it was great to see people getting excited about what we are offering as a supported self-employment opportunity. We were also part of Jenny Connick FRSA’s presentation! We have had some amazing initial feedback from the SEND and Careers advisors which attended, "I just wanted to reiterate my thanks for your workshop yesterday" "Very good and helpful" "The SAMEE Project was inspiring and hopefully will be a great resource for us moving forward"

Our SISE Programme is now award winning!

Sam, Sak and Lea were invited to attend the Career Development Institute awards last week (26th June). SAMEE's Steps into Self Employment programme was shortlisted for the Careers Programme - Post-16 education award and we won it!

“As a Trustee of Samee, to see the hard work, dedication, and innovation that the charity does and the passion shown by Sam, their Chief Exec to be recognised by the Career Development Institute (CDI) was a real milestone. To be recognised by your peers as leaders in the post 16 Employability space for their Careers programme in Post 16, is no easy feat. Their relentless strive for creating social mobility, supporting those who need it most and leaving no one behind is admirable and inspiring. I’m so proud of what Sam and the team have achieved and as will all those people they’ve impacted and lives they’ve changed.”
